Writing - Last 10 things for May

There are some strange examples of human behaviour in this week's collection.

1. Paul McCartney used to get his girlfriend's mother to comb his leg hair.

There's something sexual about that which is rather weird.


------------------------------------

2. The oldest world title in sport is for real tennis and it dates back to 1740.

Probably held by some Lord or Count or Prince!


------------------------------------

3. The world's most dangerous school run may be in south-western China, where children have to climb down an 800m cliff.

In the UK sending kids to school unsupervised is as risky as it gets.


------------------------------------

4. The Mongol army probably gave up invading Europe in the 13th Century because of the wet weather.

Wish would-be immigrants would think along the same lines.


------------------------------------

5. US nuclear weapons are controlled using eight-inch floppy disks.

They're under control! Wow!


------------------------------------

6. The Russian Eurovision singer Sergey Lazarev has launched his own range of dog food.

Sounds a little rough to me.


------------------------------------

7. Gordon Brown is descended from Vikings.

Most of us were but not all Vikings were idiots.


------------------------------------

8. The Game Of Thrones character Hodor's name actually means "Hold the door".

A dialectic corruption.


------------------------------------

Image result for misogynistic females

9. Half of all misogynistic tweets posted on Twitter come from women, a study suggested.

Doesn't surprise me as many women spend time moaning at themselves in the mirror.


------------------------------------

10. The monks of Mount Athos shun female animals - except for cats.

Do they shun all cats and not just the females?
